PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — It's been a rough start to the season for the Eagles  and their fans. Some diehard fans in Mayfair shared their thoughts about the Birds' season so far with KYW Newsradio.

We're starting the season 1-2, including back-to-back losses, and Eagles fans are a bit worried.

This wasn’t the way it anyone expected to kick off a season with Super expectations.

"They're scaring me," said Richard Martinez.

"They look a little shaky," said Nelson, another fan.

But these guys don't seem to be in full panic mode yet, because the Birds, they say, aren't at full strength. Nelson says it’s been brutal not having top wide receivers Alshon Jeffrey and DeSean Jackson.

"We need DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffrey back. Our receivers are not looking too good right now," he said. "Once they come back, I think we should get a rhythm but we don’t got an outside threat right now."

The receivers are definitely not looking good, with a whole bunch of dropped passes on Sunday night.

Martinez says he remains hopeful because of who is still playing and coaching.

"I trust in Wentz and Pederson. They usually always play like this. They should be called the catchup Eagles."

Many Eagles fans remain loyal. That includes Eric Furda. He was shown on the national TV broadcast yelling like a madman. Turns out he is the dean of admissions at the University of Pennsylvania.

This morning the Dean tweeted he would take a "15 yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct, but I will not lose my passion for Philadelphia and Penn sports!"

The hope is that the Eagles get healthy, figure things out and don't need to play catch up, especially with the undefeated — yes, undefeated — Dallas Cowboys.
